Yosemite Border Tour, Day 8

The Last Day (sort of)!!!

We both slept well and were happy to find sun shining on us at 6:30.
Allowing plenty of time to relax and sip coffee.
We took a short hike along the Panorama Trail.....and enjoyed more incredible views.
We hiked down the Panorama Trail to the John Muir Trail (I think) and on across the footbridge just above Nevada Fall.
Woah! There's a few hundred feet of air beneath the camera.
We decided to hike down the Mist Trail for the views of the waterfalls and we were not disappointed.
Above Vernal Fall we noticed a lot of soaked people so we put on our shells and headed down. Clouds rolled in, mist filled the canyon, and it felt like I was in England again!

Needless to say, we stuck out like sore thumbs with the skis on our backs. We spent a lot of time explaining to people where we had been and what we had done. Most were amazed, a few gave us the "you are an idiot" look. The nearly constant questions and comments only grew wearisome near the end since almost everyone was in a joyful mood.

Some great college students took this one of us near the trailhead.
We took the shuttle to Yosemite Village and continued to enjoy the splendor of the valley.
But we REALLY enjoyed the double bacon cheeseburgers with fries and a Guinness!!!
